Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/823500/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (823500) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. TheArchive is meant to be an archive of mods that were on the now gone, some mods for Boneworks aren't on Thunderstore. However, if a mod is on Thunderstore, get it from there. Only get mods from TheArchive when they aren't available on Thunderstore.
